May Newsletter

Our second electronic newsletter should have reached your e-mail inbox on May 3rd. We’ve received quite a few positive comments but would appreciate more feedback. Please share your ideas and/ or any articles that our neighborhood would be interested in.

We’re proud to say that 185 newsletters were sent electronically and only 74 were printed and mailed via US Postal Service. Thanks for providing us with your e-mail address and for contributing to a second year of no increases in annual dues.

Schools Out

School is out in June. Please be aware of our kids on skateboards, bikes and walking their dogs. Watch for adults as well.

Main Entrance Landscape Update

Many thanks to Sue Jones for keeping our costs in line on the main entrance landscape repairs.
A standing ovation for 2 homeowners that reported a broken irrigation zone in the island at the intersection of Barrington and Beacon Hill. Dennis 7 Dee’s responded immediately.
If you notice a problem with any landscaping issue whether it be irrigation or plants and trees in the common areas, please contact Sue.

Imperial Drive Entrance

Delivery trucks continue to cause damage to the landscaping and hardscaping at the Imperial entrance. A new sign has arrived and will be installed soon. The sign will direct trucks to use the main entrance on Salamo. Please keep reminding all delivery drivers to use Barrington’s main entrance.
